Almost perfect
I purchased this after reading reviews on earbuds. I currently own a pair of Bowers & Wilkens C5's and was curious on how they compared to other brands. I read in a review that while the C5's are already stellar (no argument there), the presence of a hardware-based headphone amp would dramatically improve highs and lows. Now, since such a thing would be cumbersome on an iPod or iPad, I also read about software-based solutions such as this one. There was a lot of positive feedback so I decided to give this app a try. From a sound perspective, I notice enough of a difference so that this is now my default music app! I'm a huge fan of presets so now it will take time to tweak the settings to make them just right. The configuration is not as detailed as equalizer alternatives, but I'm ok with that. My iPod is not meant to be a soundboard after all. Now here's what keeps it from being perfect: 1. Music sorting within the UI can still be improved - When I navigate my library, I choose by Genre->Artist->Album->Track. What Sonicmax Pro gives me is Genre->Album->Track. Result - more time to find my music. 2. True Gapless Playback - There is still a noticeable blip between tracks, especially on concert selections and mixes. Reminds me of when Rockbox first came out on iRiver devices. Result - I use the default player for these. Shame because I want to use this for all of my music. All in all, great effort and worth the purchase. Hoping for these issues to be addressed and then I'll be happy with this as much as I am with my C5's.

Great app
It makes bad headphone sound good and good headphones sound great the only problem is that it organizes songs weird

Better than an equalizer
Ever since I made the switch from Creative music players to iPods, I have tried different sound apps to try to bring the iPod's sound up to par. This is the app I have been looking for. Not only can you shape the sound, you can also set presets for the different sound environments in which you listen to music (headphones, car, home stereo, etc...). Great app, highly recommended.

Great product!
I've used BBE for many years and have always been pleased with their products. This program is no exception.

Simply Awesome
The sound has always been top notch. It restores the depth and warmth that has always been missing from MP3 files. The previous version was a little difficult to navigate but I considered it worth the hassle. The new version (1.5) solves all the navigation issues. Sounds great and simple to use. This is simply the best $5 I have ever spent on an app.
